Noel Gallagher is the 859th richest man in Britain, according to the annual Rich List published in today’s Sunday Times. In the overall list of pop millionaires, Noel is placed at number 47 equal alongside Genesis keyboards player Tony Banks, label boss Alan McGee, former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman, John Illsey of Dire Straits and – inexplicably – Annie Lennox. All are worth approximately ’25 million.
The list of Britain’s richest 1000 is published annually and is topped this year by food packaging billionaire Hans Rausing. Sir Paul McCartney tops the list of music millionaires – he comes 33rd overall with a fortune estimated at ‘500 million.
Others who made the list include Elton John, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, David Bowie, Mick Hucknall and George Michael.
